Meet Georgina, our compassionate and highly trained Personal Care Worker

Georgina joins us from the Solomon Islands where she was a qualified Registered Nurse for over 15 years. At Groundwater Lodge, she loves getting to know residents and creating a true sense of home.

How did you come to work at Groundwater Lodge?

Through the Pacific Australia Labour Mobility (PALM) Scheme, there was an opportunity for me to move here for four years as a Personal Care Worker in Aged Care. I jumped at the chance to help, so I could further my skills, support people in this regional community, and enjoy the Australian way of life.

What do you love most about your role and this opportunity?

I love working with the elderly and helping them through such an important time in their lives. It truly makes me happy when they’re happy, and I try
my best to attend to their every need. Groundwater Lodge is a small, tight- knit community with very friendly people. We all work together to achieve together and we put the needs of residents first.

How does the leadership team support you?

Jinto is a great Manager who I know I can go to at any time, and my colleagues are very helpful and supportive. We’re all one team.

How are you supported by Apollo Care?

The Apollo Care systems make the job of providing excellent care to residents so much easier. For example, we will soon implement a new medication system, Best Med, that will mean we no longer need to interpret doctor’s instructions or handwriting – it will all be there and easily accessible.

At PresCare, we are using the PALM Scheme to complement our local recruitment efforts. This initiative is helping to reduce our reliance on temporary staff, which enhances consistency of care to residents.
